In an effort to try and understand the UK public's thoughts on retirement and how they intend to plan for it, a leading UK charity (Age UK) undertook a survey.
Interestingly, the survey found that many UK adults have lost a pension over the course of their life. The main reasons for this are as follows: people move jobs more, people move house more and younger people may not always understand the value or importance of a pension.
